fnatic to playoffs over NiP

fnatic have clinched the last playoffs spot with a confident win on Train against NiP (16-7).

fnatic got off to a flying start on Train with Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer getting three kills on the defense. After Jesper "JW" Wecksell won the opening duel against William "draken" Sundin and secured the fourth round for his team, NiP opted for a lower attack early and got on the board.

However, another lower attack ended up with fnatic retaking despite a disadvantage and Robin "flusha" Rönnquist's side went on another streak, that time of five rounds in a row.


fnatic secure the last playoffs spot

NiP went back to what had worked before and executed on B with a low forcebuy for their second round in the half, but it was all they could do before the half ended as fnatic switched over to Terrorists with a dominant 13-2.

Richard "Xizt" Landström's two opening kills in the following pistol round gave NiP the much-needed pistol round and survived the next eco. Adam "friberg" Friberg then put up a triple on A for two more rounds, but fnatic didn't take long to get on the board with two out of the next three rounds, reaching match point at 15-7 and finishing NiP off in the next round.

PotM: With several multi-kills and a consistent contribution, Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson was a crucial player in the Swedish derby, also putting up the most kills overall (25-12 score, 107 ADR, 1.60 rating).

I don't get it. Why they picked Overpass vs. HR. It was freewin tbh. Well. WP Fnatic. And NiP should learn from this. And what is wrong with GeT. He's one of the best players ever. He should GeT_BaCk. But still #GONINJAS

He very much does. One of the most weakest links in 4 months,
2017-04-08 01:50
Feel for draken, but I guess he knew what he was doing. NiP is still a team in shambles. We can see slight improvements but 4/20 in a playoff deciding game for their "starplayer" is just unacceptable. Hopefully GTR can bounce back but it just feels like he pales in comparison to stars of other top teams. He has a weak mind and cant bounce back form a poor start. You look at guys like device, snax, shox, coldzera, olof...They will never have a game like this. Reason for that being that these guys all have an ego, they will at all times put themselves into battles that they know they can win and most of the time they do so which in turn boosts their confidence.
